    I have a pair. I like them. The tongue is a little different. They're a little like lacing up my old ice skates, one or two too many eyelets.

    The rubber tread compound is very grippy on turf, that's nice. They are light and breath well. I like the toe cover but it's not a safety toe.

    I'm retired now so I don't know how long they will last in commercial use. I wear them for 3 or 4 hours of yard work at a time and my feet don't get sore. After all the time I've spent on my feet over the years that's saying something.

    Anybody else tried them?

    Merrills everyday except when a heavier boot is needed then it's the Timberland Pro.
    Also, I have plantar fasciitis and have weened myself off of wearing the prutalis (???) insoles with either.

    What are steel toes ? Way too much walking for that here. Let the admonishments and outrage of the collective begin.

    None here either. Not doing hardscaping or landscaping of any type. Strictly mow. Pushers or Walks. Walking all day. No thanks
